Scientific Linux Security Update : selinux-policy on SL6.x i386/x86_64

This script is Copyright (C) 2012 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

This update fixes the following bugs :

- An incorrect SELinux policy prevented the qpidd service
from connecting to the AMQP (Advanced Message Queuing
Protocol) port when the qpidd daemon was configured with
Corosync clustering. These selinux-policy packages
contain updated SELinux rules, which allow the qpidd
service to be started correctly.

- With SELinux in enforcing mode, an OpenMPI job submitted
to the parallel universe environment failed on ssh keys
generation. This happened because the ssh-keygen utility
was not able to read from and write to the
'/var/lib/condor/' directory'. With this update, a new
SELinux policy has been added for the '/var/lib/condor/'
directory, which allows the ssh-keygen utility to read
from and write to this directory.SL6.x
